95% Gamay from Beaujolais & Beaujolais Villages combined with 5% Gamaret. The latter, a little known varietal created in the 1990s by crossing Gamay with Reichensteiner, had hopes of being authorized for production in Beaujolais, but this never happened. Consequently, there are plots of these vines growing in little known villages in the region and occasionally, as in this case, it is blended with Gamay to make a plump, darker, some would say more fun wine to be enjoyed without fuss with the hearty fare served locally. Julien Revillon, now head of Dominique Piron’s operation, owns such a plot of vines. The wine is in fact plump, delicious, without artifice, but absolutely satisfying and food friendly.
